I liked that one - preferred it to The Time Machine and War of the Worlds.
I'm about to finish One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest; last book was Julian Barnes' The Sense of an Ending.
Awesomesauce. I've read both War of the Worlds and The Time Machine, and whilst I find the ideas and concepts really interesting, can't help but feel that Wells' writing leaves something to be desired. But will definitely check out The Invisible Man in light of your favourable review.
Both non-fiction: Outliers by Malcom Gladwell (about how successful people are successful) and Russell's History of Western Philosophy (I'm about 20 pages in to 750). I've been looking forward to reading Van Gogh's letters, which I bought about a month ago, but for some reason have yet to start.
Just finished Fahrenheit 452 by Ray Bradbury, crazy short.
Got 5 chapters left of Ragged Trousered Philanthropists left... why is this book so long?! D: It's a fantastic piece of political literature, and there are so many people I'd love for them to read it, but it's just so ridiculously long, the only people who will power through to the end are people who already agree with the ideology in the first place.
The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie. I'm a big fan of Poirot and Miss Marple (have read almost all of them at this stage) but this is my first Tommy and Tuppence book. It's an enjoyable read so far, but a bit more adventure than murder mystery - I tend to prefer the latter. Am still managing to get through it at a reasonable pace, and have another Agatha (Nemesis) awaiting me when I'm done
I started reading The Hunger Games yesterday and I was so underwhelmed. The writing style was a bit odd and the main character was kind of...blech. Anyway, I stopped reading after ten pages. I just can't stomach another love triangle
I've just finished the Hunger Games...it was.... I don't really know. I saw the film before reading the book and whereas usually I prefer the book to the film, they just seemed to mirror each other. The descriptions in the book were in places rather forced and I found Katniss utterly dull. Like Twilight, and many other books of the young adult genre, there was just too much teenage angst for my liking!
Meanwhile, I've also been reading The Woman in White....now that is a book I am enjoying!
